3. Focus > Segregate Your Workspace with Virtual Desktops

Segregate Your Workspace with Virtual Desktops

Note

Virtual desktops unclutter your stacks of windows.

One of the cool features from the Unix world is virtual desktops. A virtual desktop is just like your regular desktop, with windows in a certain arrangement, but the “virtual” part indicates that you can have more than one. Instead of having one massively jumbled desktop with your IDE, your database console, and all your email, instant messaging, browsers, etc. on it, you can have singly purposed desktops for each logical grouping of activities. A massive pile of windows on your desktop distracts you from your focus because you constantly have to sort through the windows.
